Study uncovers how splines, a newly identified pattern of rhythmic communication between the right and left hemispheres of the brain, improve brain communication as a result of dreaming and running.
Different types of dendrites process incoming information in different ways before sending it to the body of the neuron.
Grid cell dysfunction in the entorhinal cortex may explain why people with a genetic risk factor for Alzheimer's disease have problems with navigation.
The posterior hippocampus tracks distance to a newly learned location, as well as familiar environments. By contrast, when navigating a familiar location, the retrosplenial cortex takes over responsibility for tracking distance. The findings shed light on how the brain navigates and encodes spatial information.
Researchers have created a computational model that helps explain how mental images drawn from memory can be explained by the firing of specific neurons.
A new study sheds light on how our brain stores long term spatial memories. Researchers have identified a specific pattern of neural activity in the retrosplenial cortex when our brains are in the process of storing spatial memories.
A new study reveals how patterns of neural activity in the retrosplenial cortex assist with navigation and spatial memory.
